What We’re Learning

Writer’s Workshop: In our new Unit ‘How-to Books’, we will be using what we already know to write & teach others. J

Reader’s Workshop: Did you know Room #36 is about to tackle more challenging books? So what does this mean? Bigger books=Bigger reading muscles!!!


Over the next several weeks we will be working on letter sequence and short vowel words (CVC). It will be helpful for your child to read ABC books at home (a list will be sent home shortly).
